UNESCO absurdity continues:UNESCO has designated the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, one of the oldest Jewish holy sites, to be a Muslim Palestinian shrine, utterly devoid of its Jewish connection. The tomb is the burial place of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca and Leah, Israel’s patriarchs and matriarchs. USA Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley described the vote as “an affront to history”. UNESCO said that King David was in Tibet not in Jerusalem and his son Solomon built the temple in South America not Jerusalem.Thank God for the USA ambassador to the UN. What a disgrace UNESCO is.
Jerusalem On Edge As Israel (Sort Of) Flexes Muscles at Temple Mount.No, Jews still can't pray at Judaism's holiest site. The threat of Muslim violence has firmly established that status quo.But Israel is partially exercising its sovereignty by refusing to remove newly reinstalled metal detectors at the entrances to the Temple Mount.It was Israel's acquiescence months ago to Muslim demands that it remove those metal detectors that facilitated last Friday's deadly terrorist shooting that took the lives of two Israeli police officers guarding the holy site.Israel promptly put the metal detectors back in place, and the Muslim world proceeded to lose its mind.At first, Muslims boycotted the holy site (which must not then be all that holy to them), but that only enabled more Jews to visit.So, the Muslims instead decided to flood the Temple Mount this Friday, but were met by an Israel Police blockade.Bus loads of Muslim rioters...er, worshipers were turned back, while mobs of those who arrived on foot from more nearby locations pelted police with stones.A number of local Arab village leaders and Arab Members of Knesset were detained for openly inciting violence.Source: Israel Today, July 21 2017.
Having had the privilege of being at the tomb of Abraham and the others less than a year ago I certainly agree that this area including the Temple Mount belongs to the Jewish people. Abraham sleeps underneath a Muslim edifice ad for the others. It was the most spiritually oppressive place I visited in Israel. At the Muslim checkpoint leading to the Dome of the Rock everyone is required to lay aside their Bibles and any religious literature. As with UNESCO rewriting the history of the Jewish people it may be the same type of undertaking to propose the Jews were divorced as God's people in 70 AD and are now just like any other people. That's revising history and the steadfastness of God's promises.
The said thing is the Israel is always portrayed by the liberal press as the bully.One day the Lord himself will turn the tables.
Israel will not back down on security measures for worshipers entering the Temple Mount compound, Tzachi Hanegbi, Minister for National Security and Foreign Affairs, told Army Radio on Sunday.“If you are threatening us that you wont enter the Mount, then don’t enter the Mount. Put down prayer mats and pray wherever you want. If you want to pray on the Mount, pass through the checkpoints just as I had to do at the Vatican a few weeks ago, just as we all have to at the Western Wall,” Hanegbi said.Israel, Hanegbi, said, is the sovereign power in Jerusalem and on the Temple Mount. He stressed that Israel decided to preserve Muslim prayer rights on the Mount immediately after taking control of the site in 1967, maintaining the religious status quo at the site.However, he said, “the status quo does not include the right to bring arms into the Temple Mount. The status quo does not include the right to murder police officers or anyone else.”Read more at https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/92060/security-minister-not-backing-temple-mount-checkpoints/#fKWLgIugRIuyXQHZ.99
